I agree with Howard: I think your best option for lustre/satin/pearl would be ready cut pano papers from RR.

Lots of people cut from rolls, where it helps if you have a rotary trimmer. I never enjoyed the experience. I much prefer to cut from 24 x 36 inch sheets.

I think the only coated paper you will find in Arch D (24 x 26 inches), will be proofing paper and fine art cotton rag. I don't think you will find any RC papers. Probably the nearest you would find to a lustre finish would Museo Silver Rag, and even though the price of the paper has dropped significantly over recent years, you would be looking at $270 for 25 sheets.

The 3880 max sheet width is 17.39 inches.

Thanks Brian.  The pano paper from RR only goes up to 13 inches.  They do have custom cutting but only from sheets.  To try it out, I think I'll get a small roll and switch to a matte paper.  Aurora White is $43 (minus $5 coupon) for a 17x50 roll.  It's even quite a bit cheaper than their sheets.
